New York/Stuttgart – Long heralded in Canada as a key guide for medical students, nurses, and physician assistants, Essentials of Clinical Examination Handbook, Seventh Edition, recently published by Thieme for worldwide distribution, is a concise yet comprehensive on-the-job reference for history-taking and physical exams. This new edition includes updated and improved flow charts, mnemonics, illustrations, and clinical pearls, with a greater focus on evidence-based medicine across all topics. Covering both standard exams and specialty-specific diagnostic approaches, this handbook emphasizes the knowledge that is most relevant to clinicians-in-training, based on the experiences of modern students. Each chapter has been edited by several students and reviewed by faculty experts at the University of Toronto.

Students’ praise for previous editions of Essentials of Clinical Examination Handbook:

“I would use this book all the time, it’s great!”

“Great job.You are playing a role in my education and the education of many others, thank you.”

Essentials of Clinical Examination Handbook, Seventh Edition is an excellent clinical resource that is now available to medical students, residents, and allied health professionals throughout the world.
